RISE with Us! Skills for Those who Desire to Contribute #Czech-Slovak
The Czech Slovak IAYSP team held their first online event titled, “RISE with Us!”
Many young people have the desire to take action; to be engaged in activities. Through this program, the Czech Slovak IAYSP team wants to offer tools and skills that support individuals in pursuing their desire to contribute.
The content throughout the event was connected to the values of YSP; values that are in the abbreviation of the word RISE, thus “RISE with Us.”
The purpose of the “RISE with Us” program is to prepare people interested in becoming active in our society and emerge as engaging contributors who take part in projects and know understand how to effectively collaborate with others.
In the first session, there was an icebreaker to ensure participants felt more comfortable, followed by a presentation of the “Rise with Us!” program by Laurenc Klas.
Manon Masner then gave four interactive seven minutes lectures to provide a thorough explanation on each Rise value. While addressing each value, time was allocated for an activity, questions and reflection that were collated into an online workbook by Kate Nguyen. Each participant had their own virtual workbook they could access. The event ended with a group discussion where participants could share their thoughts and aspects they gained from the experience.
